As another abuse survivor I read this and would like to know what EMDR is, please.

> Michelle. When sodium amydal is used for abuse survivors, it is generally used for memory retrieval. However, it has not been supported as a technique by the abuse therapeutic community, because it is apparently just as possible to confuse memories under sodium amytal as without. Also, if one is suppressing memories, it may be continue to serve as survival mechanism, and to take away that defense is very risky. On the whole east coast I am only aware of one big name trauma (dissociative disorder) psychiatrist (Richard Lowenstein at Sheppard Pratt) who is willing to use that technique.
> But, you have the memories, so I'm not sure why you would be interested in sodium amytal. I wondering if you have tried EMDR as a technique to resolve your traumas, since you do remember them. I know there are pros and cons as to the full legitimacy of EMDR, but I personally know people who have found EMDR to be very successful in resolving painful, unsuppressable memories. Shellie
